Timoleague Abbey and Graveyard

Timoleague Abbey, in the town of the same name in Co Cork is an impressive building from the road. I must have driven (or been driven by my parents) past there hundreds of times over the years from childhood on but I don’t think I explored the Abbey ruins until about 3 or 4 years […]

Blackrock Farmer’s Market

Last weekend we went down to Blackrock Village, Cork to visit the farmer’s market and go for a walk along the Marina. It was our first time there in quite a while and it was a lovely surprise to see my cousin’s wife Louise at one of the stalls. She sells beautiful jewelery so if […]

Daffodil, snow and water droplets

A lonely daffodil bent down by the cold and snow a week ago in Blarney. Taken very close to the Daffodils in the Snow shot I posted that morning. Love the tiny water droplets on the stem of the flower. It was a toss up between this image and the one I posted previously for […]
